Starting in 1926 and spanning 80 years, moving between Poland and America, Our Class is an epic play that's profoundly affected audiences and critics since its premiere at London's National Theatre. Ten Polish classmates -- five Catholic and five Jewish -- grow up over the course of the story. Their lives take dramatically unexpected turns as their country is torn apart by invading armies, first Soviet, then German, then Soviet again. Friend betrays friend and violence quickly escalates, reaching a crescendo that forever haunts the survivors. Based on true events in the Polish town of Jedwabne, Our Class is a groundbreaking play that courageously examines loyalty and treason, individual bravery and collective cowardice and the actions that ripped apart a small community during the Second World War.

Cast did an excellent job with the roles they played and the material they had to work with...
Scenery and props were outstanding...
Music was appropriate for the times... Interesting use of the on-stage Victrola, but in some places the volume of the music overshadowed the dialog.
I was expecting a lighter farce, but the play was more of a drama and less of a comedy... I'm glad that we went, and now we can say that we saw Coward's first play, but wouldn't choose to see it again. Definitely worth the $10 ticket price.
